24 of Labour’s extreme Left in Parliament have signed a statement full of LIES about Israel thus further fuelling the appalling antisemitism seen this weekend and last week.
They lie about Israel’s presence in Judea/Samaria being ‘illegal’
They lie that Israel still has a presence (“occupies“) in Gaza and that it is ‘under siege‘.
They lie about Sheikh Jarrah and Al Aqsa
They demand an embargo on arms sales and a boycott of goods from Judea/Samaria
They support the sham ICC Inquiry and demand immediate recognition of a Palestinian State.
The fact that Chakrabarti signed it proves what we all knew – that she was competely unfit to chair Labour’s 2016 antisemitism inquiry.
More than half of them (13) have history as regards antisemitism. 19 failed to sign a letter of support for the beleagured Uighur Muslims in China because of course China is a beacon of human rights compared to Israel. 20 want Starmer to restore the Whip to Corbyn (21 including Corbyn). 12 signed the Israel Vaccine Libel EDM. Of the 20 MPs, 11 have a Muslim constituent ratio above the national average.

As such I doubt that Binyamin Netanyahu is going to lose any sleep over this letter. But British Jews might ……..
Postscript: Sultana voiced the lies in her inflammatory speech to the protest outside the Israel Embassy on 15 May.
